i think this simple structure is actually cool. not special i may have to agree, but its size is already special and the top is also awesome so i dont complain

edit: also we know this is china and they may light it up at night very colorfully, which is good when its a simple structure its not too overkill

but the overall layout is way below par. Compared to places like Gz, Sh and even the other two CBD constructions in Tianjin, this one is really sucky unfortunately

No, it's to the southwest of Tianjin city, while the Eco city is to the east, near the ocean. They really aren't related in any way.

I visited the site last night (so too dark for pics), here are my impressions:

It's in quite a weird location, not really farmland but near some industrial parks and new universities, mostly lowrise stuff. When I finally biked there I was pleasantly surprised on how much work was going on, this is definitely not a hype-over-reality kind of project. Tons of construction going on the side towers and main tower, and thousands of workers, they even had their own little market selling all kinds of food and other things, and lots of recreation provided by the company (basketball courts, outdoor TVs, etc). According to the latest articles the main tower should rise above ground by the end of the year, and also Discovery channel is making a documentary about the project. I'll return and take pics soon, once there's a nice blue-sky day here

It's called top-down construction.

how is this u/c? other towers only get that status when piling is done, right? so this is surely not under construction. or is the main tower u/c?

they've completed piling already. Now they're doing the next phase of the foundation, which is digging.

i thought they would still wait longer with this project until more projects around are completed. it's nice to see they don't x)

This actually isn't near any of the other Tianjin skyscraper projects, except Golden Mansion Center. It's good to see that they're finally working faster on the main tower, maybe they were focused more on the side towers before (which are all topped out now).
